Our Microsoft Customer Service and Support experts have released a new tool for diagnosing AD replication errors: ADREPLSTATUS. Here is the description from the download page:

Ashley, thanks for sharing this - this tool is certainly a welcome addition to Microsoft's growing family of cmd-line tools for AD management.
I'm active on ActiveDirSec.org, an SME community forum on <a href="ActiveDirSec.org">Active Directory Security</a>, and to help spread he word, I might just mention it there as well, so others can download and use it too.
Thanks for sharing!
Have you tried using Dynamic AD Replication Checker Tool located at www.Dynamic-SpotAction.com
I've just installed this tool on a Winders Server 2003 machine, but it doesn't load. A .net error is posted in the event viewer:Application: repl.exeFramework Version: v4.0.30319Description: The process was terminated due to an unhandled exception.Exception Info: System.Windows.Markup.XamlParseExceptionStack: .....There's lots more to that error if its useful. Have you come across this?
Hi Neil,Do you have .NET 3.5.1 and .NET 4.0 installed on this old server?AshleyGoateePFE
I am having the same problem as Neil, my WIndows 2003 Server has both .Net 3.5.1 and .Net 4.0. I used Aaron Stebner's ".Net Framework Setup Verification Utility" and it reports no problems with the .Net installs.
I asked this question here:

Support for a free tool failing to run on a virtually discontinued OS? sounds rather far fetched to me
Tool works great. Just wondering if there is a way to run the tool unattended as a scheduled task and have it export the results to a network share.
How do you clear an old error? I have an 8451 eirror embedded in the middle of '0' return codes. I know replication is working but I can't seem to rid of this error. For example, I just ran the ADRST on selected targets and the results were all clear except
one. I don't see anyway on just deleting the error message.
